Re: My New KR1s Project

Steve, there seems to be a lower fairing at the extreme left of the pic, just behind the rear wheel. Presumably the exhausts fit inside this fairing.

Re: My New KR1s Project

Looks like it has an RGV 17" rear wheel. Front end ZXR400?

Re: KR1S Frame and v5 wanted

If the black powdercoating is the only "problem" with the frame, why not have it blasted and finished in the colour you want?

Re: Balance shaft rebuild?

I believe BDK can rebuild a balance shaft should it be necessary.

Re: Tonnage for crank press ?

Kevin Cameron once mentioned a figure of 7 tons for Yamaha TZ250/350/750 press fits, the KR-1(S) crank shouldn't be very much different.

Re: Front fork length.

I'm trying to avoid using any valved horror parts for my project if at all possible, Bernie, though the GSX-R fork caps with the adjustable rebound fittings would be a necessary compromise. Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha valved horror parts are acceptable, but definitely NO H#$@a parts whatsoever!

Re: Front fork length.

No, standard vj22 without adjustable compression and rebound damping, Bernie, though the internals are White Power goodies according to the previous owner. Adding adjustable compression damping is probably not possible (at the very least it would require significant and costly machining, I suspect),...

Re: Front fork length.

Thanks for the replies, 722 mm makes them the same length as my vj22 RGV fork legs.

Re: Carbs & Parts Suppliers

Thanks for the info on the parts source; I need some stuff for my 35 mm PWKs as they are KX125 carbs and will require different jets to suit a KR.

Re: Photobucket

Thanks for the Firefox instructions, seems to work! Nevertheless I'll still continue to transfer all my photos from Photobucket and when that's completed permanently delete my account.

There's not only postage to consider, but also import duties.
